Dagenham & Redbridge manager Daryl McMahon ‘can’t wait’ to see his side pit their wits against big spenders Wrexham. 

Daggers currently sit top of the National League table after six matches as they head off to The Racecourse Ground on Saturday looking to continue their unbeaten start to the new campaign. 

The Red Dragons, who are owned by celebrities Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, are expected to be one of the favourites for the league title. 

“I can’t wait, we’re dying to go there. We know they’ve got a top manager, they’ve signed some top players, and they’re a football club in a rush to get back to the Football League,” McMahon said.
